Kilpatrick Rejects Plea-Deal
He rejected it. I understand why from a self-interest perspective, as he could lose a good deal with any felony conviction, but he is likely to be convicted of at least one of the charges and will probably be removed from office. He said he would take a "reasonable" offer but I have no idea what he considers reasonable.
Governor Granholm is going to begin hearings that will start the process of removing him from office. These will begin September 3rd.
He needs to go and it would be better if he left voluntarily. The only thing is that Detroit's political machine will never allow a real reformer, which is what Detroit desperately needs, to become Mayor and make the changes needed. Dennis Archer honestly tried and ran into a brick wall. The people who run Detroit don't give a damn about the kid on the street, regardless of his skin color, and are willing to run Detroit into the sewers as long as they get their money, power and prestige in the process.
